I find the SpinFits sounding pretty much the same as the wide bore tips that came with the Heaven. But they make them more confortable to wear!

post #5522 of 5525

ok, spent yesterday a while with comparing the tips.

 

Soundwise the winner are the stock tips with the narrow bore. Everything (for me at least) sounds a bit clearer.

The Spinfits are pretty much same sound as the wide bore stock tips, but the SpinFits are more comfortable.

 

1. Nnarrow bore tips

2. SpinFIt tips

3. Wide bore stock tips

 

I might come back to a previous recommendation of the JVC Spiral Dot tips....

Can anyone give me any insight into how the Heaven S compares with the Heaven VIII, I had the Heaven S some time ago and it was got me into FAD, I am now seriously considering the Heaven VIII after conceding that the Lab 1 is perhaps a stretch too far even via the FS classifieds.

 JVC did change the signature moreso than the spinfits to my ears. I like it, but it won't be an automatic choice given how it affects the sound.

Lab1 is a limited edition item which won't be produced anymore (I think). I remembered Heaven S sounds a bit less clearer , but clarity isn't its forte. It's the amazing coloring that's so alluring. Similarly, H8 didn't remind me of its clarity (directly compared to H7), but it has such relaxing signature with big bass that's very captivating.

I think it's great that you can tailor the sound just by switching tips! This reminds me of high end 2 channel where you

 

could change the sound of the whole system just by changing the speaker cables or interconnects. Changing the tips is

 

like fooling around with the tone controls....change to suit your current mood or music! By the way, i also prefer some of

 

the stock tips.
